pelvis kinematics during step-down in people with HRGP. We chose a step-down as a simulation of functional step descent that requires a substantial degree of ADF motion. We hypothesized that smaller static ADF angles, particularly with the knee flexed, would be correlated with smaller ADF angles, greater

upright and the pelvis neutral. The participants were asked to pull the first metatarsal head toward their heel in order to shorten their foot. During the SFE, the participants’ toes were not bent, and their forefoot and heel were kept in contact with the wooden box (Figure  1A ). Figure 1 —SFE with or

Also, 5% to 6% of adult sports injuries occur at the hip and pelvis. 9 – 11 It is important for allied health and fitness professionals to be able to recognize common hip musculoskeletal conditions and how they can affect movements, such as the squat. Of interest are the effects of common hip

Following the standing calibration trial, subjects performed double-leg drop landings from a 31-cm high box

clusters were used to track the thigh, shank, and foot segments during the movement trials. The pelvis was tracked by the markers placed on the posterior superior iliac spines and on the iliac crests. With the markers in place, a standing calibration trial was captured. The 3-dimensional positions of the

flexed until the knees exhibited 90° of flexion with the feet flat on the treatment table (crook lying position). 10 , 17 , 18 With the guidance of the examiner, the participants practiced the hollowing movements, avoiding movements of the pelvis and thorax. The participants were then instructed to hold

difference between the center of the pelvis (CP) and the center of the treadmill. The velocity error was determined by the global velocity of the CP. The CP equaled the average of the pelvis markers (bilateral markers on anterior superior iliac spine and posterior superior iliac spine). The marker data were

A warm-up of the main muscle groups is also recommended. • Initially inactive individuals, or those with a

Eight trials were collected for each condition. Retroreflective markers were placed on the pelvis and lower
